Showed ability when second to Christmas in a Roscommon maiden last month before a promising fourth of 11 in a stronger race at Leopardstown in August. Second on latest start and it appears to be a matter of time before he hits the winning note.

Vocalised colt, dam a half-sister to Group 2 winner Turret Rocks and another Group 3 winner. Flattered to deceive in four career starts to date and liable to find one or two more talented here.

Betting

Forecast

Wargrave (13/8), Could Be King (9/4), Mofakker (5/1), Eminence (14/1), Self Rule (20/1), Vocatus (20/1), Kasriyann (20/1), Snow Ocean (20/1), Apprenticeship (25/1), Ice Bullet (33/1), Der Mc (50/1), Gold Standard (50/1), Soloheadbeg (50/1), Shcamama (50/1), Bellepower (66/1), Act Of Magic (66/1), Live Show (100/1)

Verdict

COULD BE KING may have been found a tasty opportunity to get off the mark at the fourth time of asking here following a number of 'gallant runs in defeat' recently and can land the spoils here from the highly tried Wargrave, first-time visor wearing, Mofakker and interesting newcomer Snow Ocean.
